WBC President Mauricio Suleiman commented on the decision of the judges in the fight for the title of absolute world champion in lightweight between Vasily Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) and Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KOs).
“There is a big difference between what the three judges judging the fight see and everyone else. It doesn’t matter where you watch it, from the first or last row in the arena or on TV.
Any result could be accepted. Either the victory of one of the fighters, or a draw. Therefore, there was no robbery, which everyone is shouting about on social networks. Let’s be objective and face the facts. A great event happened and boxing won. Don’t let negativity tarnish our sport,” Suleiman said.
Note that on the night of May 20-21, Haney defeated Lomachenko in Las Vegas on points (116-112, 115-113, 115-113) and retained all his belts.
